Royals in danger: King of Sweden evacuated! What was Putin up to here?
Dramatic scenes at the Swedish royals. Actually wanted King Carl Gustaf of Sweden and his wife Queen Silvia of Sweden only attend a concert and have dinner with the Finnish President and his wife. But just before that happened, the dinner was canceled and the statesmen had to be evacuated. What happened?
Let’s start from the beginning. On Thursday were the Swedish royals and the Finnish presidential couple arrived on the Åland Islands. A ceremony was held there to celebrate 100 years of demilitarized autonomy. A concert, various events and of course the dinner should commemorate this event.
But then everything turned out differently than expected.
Royals: Putin threatens to retake ‘stolen’ territory
The news reached politicians that Russian frigates were beginning an exercise off Kaliningrad, and at the same time Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he wanted to regain “stolen” Russian territory.
A warning shot for the Finnish President and his royal colleagues. After all, Finland and Sweden want to join NATO. A plan that Putin sees as a provocation. The Finnish President and his wife were immediately flown off the island by helicopter. Too dangerous, that’s what the security people thought. The island could represent an important strategic target in the Baltic Sea, should Putin really decide to take preventive measures against the two Scandinavian countries joining NATO.
That is Carl Gustaf of Sweden:
- Charles XVI Gustaf is the head of the Swedish Royal House of Bernadotte and has been King of Sweden since September 15, 1973
- He was born on April 30, 1946 in Solna
- His wife is Silvia of Sweden
- The couple have three children
And according to “Daily Mail”, Carl Gustaf of Sweden and his wife Queen Silvia were brought from the island just a short time after the start of the ceremony in the middle of the concert. According to Swedish sources, this had been planned in advance. But they couldn’t explain why it happened so abruptly in the middle of the concert.
